On Wednesday, July 10, the first Test between England and West Indies went underway at the Lord's. It was a special day for James Anderson as he is playing his final game for the Three Lions. 

In his final match, the 41-year-old got emotional after his daughters rang the bell at the Lord's. In the bowling, Gus Atkinson, who made his Test debut, stole the limelight as he picked up a seven-wicket haul.

Nonetheless, Anderson picked up a solitary wicket, but he was all over the internet, not for his cricket skills. For a change, the bowling maestro made the headlines for his football skills as a video went viral where he was seen juggling the cricket ball as it rolled towards him.

The fans were creative in the comment sections as a few remarked that Anderson is auditioning for England's football side as they have qualified for the finals in the ongoing Euro Cup 2024 and will face Netherlands on July 15. 

It is not the first time that Anderson has revealed his liking for football on a cricket ground as he has previously too juggled the ball in between his overs.
